ABS and ESC standard. Side and head protection air bags standard.
The Edge is Ford's midsized, car-based SUV that complements the wagon-like Freestyle. Standard safety features include stability control and side and curtain air bags. Ford is aiming for a refined ride, interior versatility, and decent fuel economy, offering a more civilized alternative to traditional sport-utility vehicles. Smaller than the three-row Freestyle, the five-place Edge can flip and fold its rear seats to open up 63 cubic-feet of cargo space. The Edge will have a new 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission; front- or all-wheel drive will be offered.
